SPIKE MILLIGAN, who died ten years ago today, is best remembered for his work as the main writer of the hit radio comedy series, The Goon Show, for his quick wit, and for his appearance at the 1994 British Comedy Awards, where he infamously called Prince Charles “the little grovelling bastard” during his acceptance of a Lifetime Achievement Award.

SO how was it for you? Good, bad or indifferent? It can’t have been that bad, I guess: you’re reading this so that means you got through to the end. What am I banging on about? The first decade of the 21st century, of course. It’s hard to believe it’s in its dying days: I can still remember the hangover from what we learned to call “millennium night”. But time speeds up as we get older, I’m finding.
